LOVE AND RAGE AND NETWORK OF ANARCHIST COLLECTIVES: ON FEDERATIONS AND NETWORKS, $3, 5½” x 8½”, 27 pgs.

Iwasa works to catalog mostly ’90s anarchism and this is a nice little slice of that. Knowing our history is important, and the ’90s were a midway point where things were just starting to be cataloged digitally but not quite, and not well—many websites and forums that may have been important are now defunct or unreachable, and zines weren’t necessarily posted online in the way many are now, so a lot fell through the cracks. I’m sure in the next years or decades, more efforts will be made to historicize those movements, but for now, we’ve got zines like this and Google. I appreciate the representation of the “network of anarchist collectives” in the title, including the kind of valuable back-and-forth dialogues between people from a few different infoshops that prevents the historicization of only one perspective so common to any type of history. The scene was and is varied and diverse, and I’m glad to see it start to be preserved. –jimmy cooper (Little Black Cart, c/o A. Iwasa, PO Box 3920 Berkeley, CA 94703, [email protected])
